Hertfordshire, United Kingdom
Reviewed yesterday NEW

I had a single room which was on the third floor with no lift - so be prepared for that when booking. The room was very hot - a fan was provided which helped. The breakfast was buffet style and had run out of everything. The location is good but the facilities let it down.

Perfect location for travelling out to see the sights. Room v adequate, breakfast options good and staff v friendly. Nice touch of providing earplugs in the room as the road and city noises could be intrusive.

The room is quiet small n noisy at night with nearby pub until 2pm. To me it wasn't matter that much.. The room with no bathtub just only shower and toilet. The breakfast was very lovely and full range. The staffs were really care and friendly. Hotel is in good location if you travel around in London. I am recommended.

Great location. About 10 min walk to New Oxford St/Oxford st and 20 min walk to Leicester Square and most theaters. Bus lines just outside the hotel to Trafalgar Sq and Waterloo. Other side of the street, bus lines to Camden etc. Very friendly, smiling and helpful staff. The room was nice and clean, but could benefit with an update...

Sadly this hotel had been booked on my behalf for a work trip. I will never go there again. Probably the worst place I've stayed over the last 15yrs of travelling. Grubby, badly outdated, tiny room, 2 plug sockets in the entire room, shower and tv from many moons ago, room stunk of smoke etc etc. On arrival my booking...

Tired and uninspiring hotel, will not be rushing back. Back stairs are threadbare, the lift wasn't working and breakfast was like some thing from 30 years ago with tinned fruit etc. Great location, terrible execution.

Found this hotel when browsing for options in Bloomsbury. Well located in busy area and within walking distance from both Holborn and Russel Square tube stations. Old building with beautiful stained glass windows (not in rooms though!), spacious room and bathroom. Nice and clean and not dusty (which seems to be a problem at many hotels no matter which standard)....

Great place to stay. Very central. We come to London to visit our son and it was very comfortable and reasonably priced. Staff very pleasant. Lovely breakfast the next day. We booked through Secret Escapes.

Hotel is centrally positioned in a good position to visit the West End. The staff were good and helpful but the rooms were dreadful, desperately in need of refurbishment. They were like student accommodation from the 1980s. My room was small and pokey with the bed taking up most of the room, whilst the bathroom left a lot to be...
